House Prices "continue To Fall" In The Sw

Recommended Posts

How this month's RICS survey was reported on the local news this morning. Well they don't read the Daily Express then!

Also said sales at three year high.

So... lower prices -> higher sales.

That's be right.

Couldn't find a story on the survey yet.

Interestin'.

Any breakdown there, given that the so-called 'southwest' region incorporates both large areas that are really southeast england and areas that are 'outer Britain' and have more in common with the North?

As a west country bumpkin I would define the southwest as anything W to SW of Hampshire / Berkshire until you hit the severn estuary or the coast. So Wiltshire, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Gloucestershire.

Not seeing a fall in prices around here, its still appears to be the 2nd most expensive region to live in the UK , excluding London of course.

+1 on definition of area and experience of prices.

Wiltshire is very clearly southeast in all but name. And Gloucestershire seems to sit more easily as the south end of an "english marches" region, between Wales to the west and the industrial midlands to the east and extending north as far as cheshire.

As for the southwest counties (and indeed the two I've just disowned), they span that north/south divide line commonly said to run from Bristol to the Wash. In economic terms it's real, and extends southwest to Exeter (you can even see on the map: Exeter is the end of both the motorway and the fast railway and where a south-east region railcard will get you; west of Exeter is Outer Britain).

Not seeing much change around by me either........(South wales coastal)........if anything the bottom end of the market seems to be climbing slowly.

Shifting too
